Development

Government agencies, and others, are often concerned about the economic development of a region or an industry. Development can also involve the development (or self-development) of the people in a job or industry.

Population and Development of the Arab Gulf States: The Case of Bahrain, Oman and Kuwait

Nadeya Sayed Ali Mohammed

Population and Development of the Arab Gulf States: The Case of Bahrain, Oman and Kuwait by Nadeya Sayed Ali MohammedThis thought-provoking study measures and critically examines the effects that an average population growth rate of 2.8% could have on the development of the Arab Gulf States.  It questions the ability of Gulf governments to continue providing relatively high standards of education, health and employment under conditions of rapid population growth, an undiversified economic base, and a tribal political framework.  Within this context, population growth is identified as one important variable that hinders long-term development. The book will appeal to all those interested...

Globalising the Climate: COP21 and the climatisation of global debates

Stefan C. Aykut

Globalising the Climate: COP21 and the climatisation of global debates by Stefan C. Aykut

Frequently presented as a historic last chance to set the world on a course to prevent catastrophic climate change, the 21st Conference of the Parties to the Climate convention (COP21) was a global summit of exceptional proportions. Bringing together negotiators, scientists, journalists and representatives of global civil society, it also constituted a privileged vantage point for the study of global environmental governance "in the making".

Sustainable Growth in the African Economy: How Durable is Africa's Recent Performance?

Jeffrey James

Sustainable Growth in the African Economy: How Durable is Africa's Recent Performance? by Jeffrey James

The current growth path in sub-Saharan Africa is not following the Lewis model where labour moves from low-productivity agriculture to higher productivity manufacturing. Instead, it is moving directly to inappropriate (import and labour-saving) methods. This book seeks to show how this distorted growth process leaves out the major resource of these countries - labour - and ends up creating unstable employment and underemployment, leading to inequality and poverty. In this way it demonstrates how the entire growth process may be rendered unstable and unsustainable.

Sustainable Growth in the African...
